Welcome to the website of Ken Pelham! I'm hoping you dropped in because you're a fan of suspense fiction ladled with science, philosophy, and adventure, and topped with a dripping dollop of gore. If not, maybe we can turn you. Come. Join us. Do not be afraid...

In addition to updates on my novels, I'll weigh in on literature in general, and thrillers and suspense fiction in particular. Feedback is welcome.

...'tis true that we are in great danger; the greater therefore should our courage be.

What I Write (and Why)

Give me a story that plunges ahead with breathing, breakable characters, and a setting indispensable from the tale. Take those characters, stick them in that setting, and throw the kitchen sink at them. An exploding kitchen sink with rusty, razor edges for shrapnel.

That’s thriller territory.

BRIGANDS KEY was released upon an unsuspecting public in July, 2012. Others are underway and will (fingers crossed) follow Brigands Key shortly into publication.  Zip to "My Novels" for info.
